Propel Northside: Veteran Oral History Project

Submitted by on July 20, 2017 – 8:00 am | 266 views

In Summer of 2017, SLB Radio Productions, Inc., in partnership with Propel Schools and Leadership Pittsburgh, convened a group of 6th through 8th grade students to conduct interviews with local veterans about their military experiences. While learning about digital audio recording, the students also discussed the importance of storytelling through the oral tradition. With support as needed, students arranged and conducted the interviews.

Special thanks to Rachel Scott, Deanna Dugan, Rosemary Anderson, Lashawna McHenry and everyone at Propel Northside, Josh Marino, Erik Orient, Leadership Pittsburgh and the Veterans Breakfast Club.
